In brief: Skin problem

Not familial with green brushes.
Perhaps you are asking about green bruising on legs. When blood in skin first appears after a bruise it is dark blue. As the body heals the bruise it changes from blue to green to brown to normal skin color over a period of a few weeks. You may have a disorder that makes you more prone to bruising, and this requires seeing your doctor for an examination.
